Schepps was born into an immigrant family and grew up in tenements on the Lower East Side, New York. His marvellous jewellery designs took the American market by storm in the 1930s allowing Schepps to rise through the social strata. With his pioneering designs including chunky brooches, barberic bracelets and bubble earrings, Schepps defined a new style of the American woman and his jewellery featured on the covers of top fashion publications such as Vogue, Harper's Bazaar and Look. Schepps counted Katherine Hepburn, Coco Chanel, Elsa Schiaparelli, the Duchess of Windsor, Andy Warhol as well as members of the Du Pont, Mellon and Rockerfeller families all among his clients. Not only did his jewellery appeal to a wide range of clientele, all flocking to his store on Madison Avenue in the 30s, 40s and 50s, he was also highly influential amongst his contemporaries. In fact, even 50 years after his death, he continues to inspire modern jewellers.
